[PATCH] EISA bus MODALIAS attributes support
Add modalias attribute support for the almost forgotten now EISA bus and (at least some) EISA-aware modules. The modalias entry looks like (for an 3c509 NIC): eisa:sTCM5093 and the in-module alias like: eisa:sTCM5093* The patch moves struct eisa_device_id declaration from include/linux/eisa.h to include/linux/mod_devicetable.h (so that the former now #includes the latter), adds proper MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE(eisa, ...) statements for all drivers with EISA IDs I found (some drivers already have that DEVICE_TABLE declared), and adds recognision of __mod_eisa_device_table to scripts/mod/file2alias.c so that proper modules.alias will be generated. There's no support for /lib/modules/$kver/modules.eisamap, as it's not used by any existing tools, and because with in-kernel modalias mechanism those maps are obsolete anyway. The rationale for this patch is: a) to make EISA bus to act as other busses with modalias support, to unify driver loading b) to foget about EISA finally - with this patch, kernel (who still supports EISA) will be the only one who knows how to choose the necessary drivers for this bus ;) [akpm@osdl.org: fix the kbuild bit] Signed-off-by: Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru> Cc: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au> Cc: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@xenotime.net> Acked-the-net-bits-by: Jeff Garzik <jeff@garzik.org> Acked-the-tulip-bit-by: Valerie Henson <val_henson@linux.intel.com> Cc: James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@steeleye.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
